For Pete's Sake

Minneapolis church has message for Vikings fans

After tossing aside his helmet, Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs kneeled in the end zone just after his 61-yard game-winning touchdown on the last play of Sunday’s NFC Divisional playoff against the New Orleans Saints.

It seems safe to assume that someone somewhere was praying that the Vikings would be able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in Sunday’s NFC Divisional playoff game.

Odds are one or more people in Minnesota* asked for divine help for the Vikings, who stunned New Orleans with a 61-yard touchdown pass on the final play of their 29-24 victory.

*Iowa is full of Vikings supporters, too

Fans in the Land of 10,000 Lakes who may have made a promise to God during Sunday’s game were given a reminder of their pledge by a church in Minneapolis.

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church shared this message on Facebook on Monday, and even if no one actually promised to start attending church, this is really funny:
